    July 15, 2013 - Popped and poured. I'd recommend at least an hour decant. The longer in the glass, the silkier the wine became. Lots of great things happening in this wine....nose of dark fruits, currants, sweet tobacco, cedar. Tannins were noticeable at first, but settled in nicely after about an hour. Red fruits on the finish. Earthier notes came out over time. A fun wine! Enjoyed with my hubby and a perfectly grilled beef tenderloin.
